How To Make Black Bean-Poblano Quesadillas

Homemade Flour Tortillas truly make Black Bean-Poblano Quesadillas a real treat. Prepare them in advance so they are ready to fill at a moments notice. Although Refried Black Beans are used to illustrate this recipe classic, consider omitting them & add grilled chicken, smoked pulled pork or cooked shrimp instead for a wonderful flavor variation.
